S1E8: Leo Kalyan
Jul 13th, 2017 by Bottle Pop with Tom Aspaul
Tom takes Bottle Pop on the road as he travels to multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer Leo Kalyan’s house for a chat. They toast to diversity (not the Britain’s Got Talent dance troupe) and put the world to rights on a wide range of issues. From Indian music being sampled in Western pop, to the lack of brown artists being played on UK radio, Leo discusses in depth, how juggling being both an LGBT artist and Asian, can be a struggle. The pair also talk about Leo’s early years, his training in Indian Classical Music and his fascination with the sea. Leo reveals what his drag name would be (it’s amazing!), his obsession with RuPaul’s Drag Race and chooses RuPaul, Holly Valance and Whigfield for his Aux Cable Selection.
